Randy Moss - Sox & Dawgs file photoRachel Washington, of Ft. Lauderdale FL alleges that Moss hit her and prevented her from seeking medical treatment on January 6th.  The incident would have happened during the Patriots bye week, Washington alleges the incident occurred in her home.

According to the order, Moss has to remain 500 feet from her, her car and her home.  A hearing has been scheduled for January 28th. 

Moss addressed the allegation this morning at Gillette Stadium:

“First of all, you all probably heard about these allegations. All I want to say is that they are false allegations. It’s something I’ve been battling for the last couple days, threats of going public if I didn’t pay X amount of dollars. Before people rush quick to judgment, I think you need to find out the facts about really what is really going on.”

Mike Reiss of the Boston Globe has the morning responses from Moss outlined in his Reiss’ Pieces Blog.  Moss made an initial statement and then decided he would answer some questions from the media.
